Customers often thank their boat builder personally but few seem to do it publicly. As an existing customer of Redbay Boats I have just taken delivery of my second rib, moving up from an 8.4 to the new 11m Touring Version. To say the boat is outstanding is an understatement. The boat is fitted with twin Yamaha ME432 315hp engines with twin duo prop outdrives and a host of the latest Raymarine electronics. On my first trip out yesterday we topped 40 knots with ease. It was a fresh day with a moderate sea of 3-4ft waves on the nose. Sitting in suspension KAB seats with the trim tabs fully down we cruised from Redbay to Rathlin for a pint and back and did it with an unsettling ease that I havent been used to before. Having circumnavigated Ireland last July in a jockey seat, this is real comfort.
To Tom McLaughlin, Gary Fyfe, Paddy McCambridge and the rest of the Redbay Team what can I say except thanks and I'll express my gratitude in pints over the next few weeks. Next friday cant come soon enough for some more familiarisation with the new set up. I will be at the Rid Raid next Sunday so if you are there pull along side and see what the next generation of Redbay Ribs looks like.
I will post photos later but in the mean time have a look at the Latest News section on the Redbay site.
